A banker holds up a placard and cup and begs for a few more million dollars
ILLINOIS – USA – A group of forty five top stockbrokers from the country's biggest brokerage firms have camped down in a deserted field at Hicksville University, 34 kms from Chicago.
“We demand our rights to make loads of money and spend it on fast cars, fast women and luxury penthouses,” Larry Silverheimer, 45, a mortgage broker, who earned $16 million last year and paid only $120,000 tax on that, told reporters.
The bankers were flown onto the deserted field via helicopter and their butlers and servants created luxury tents for them to protest from.
“I’m here today to beg the Occupy Wall Street protesters to forgive my excesses. Last year alone I made over $25 million in taxpayer funded bonuses even though I actually lost taxpayers’ bailout money trading. How about that for an amazing turnaround. I was rewarded for failing. Now that’s what I call banking!” Ed Jimsen, 32, a senior banker at Goldman Sachs told the FT.
The assembled bankers want to demand more funds from the Federal Reserve so they can carry on with their luxurious lifestyles.
“The Fed has to pay us some more money because we’ve basically run out of money from the last bailout. We kinda spent it all already. We want the US taxpayers to pay for more of our goodies. Shieet, I have a fleet of Maseratis, Lamborghinis and Ferraris to service, step up to the plate people, y’all owe me,” an angry Billy Batts, 31, senior analyst at J.P. Morgan told a news crew.
